Intro


This play therapy training is offered On-Demand as a go-at-your-own pace course for non-contact hours.


Family play therapy techniques can facilitate exploration and opportunities for change in every member of the family system. Using an Ecosystemic approach, goals and progression for family play therapy sessions will be demonstrated through video examples with one family, while incorporating their cultural values and respecting their diverse perspectives. This workshop will include considerations of identifying when it is beneficial to include very family member, structuring sessions with parents in play therapy, responding to family dynamics, and recognizing the level of arousal and trauma responses of family members. Emphasis will be given to ongoing assessment of the multi-systemic layers of both internal and external support or tension for the child and family. Video examples will include creative interventions to reveal attachment styles, the child’s development, unhealthy patterns, and coping behaviors. Participants will have the opportunity to apply experiential exercises by dividing into “families."
